N5FDL: Sure-Fire Ways to Kill Your ARES® Program

Reprinted from the ARRL ARES® E-letter, April 20, 2011:

Last month, I offered what I believe are ten ways to grow an ARES® or EMCOMM program. This month, I'll offer a list of ways to do just the opposite. Most are related to leadership.

Politics: If you've been around a while, you've experienced the evil of Amateur Radio politics, often made worse because we're a passionate bunch and nobody really has an important (job, money, family) stake in the debate. ARES® is different. We have a public safety mission and people count on us. We do not have time for politics.

National Terrorism Alert System

The new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) provides the means to share heightened terrorism threat information across our nation and allow authorities and stakeholders to take protective action.
